WPL, Mar/Apr/May 2017
« on: March 12, 2017, 09:12:14 AM »
Until the end of the 2016-17 season  :-\

Only a few games were played on March 5th.

Today it's a bigger round of fixtures, with the table being especially finely poised in the Southern Division:

In case you missed it,

FAWPL play off final will be held at The Valley
www.womensfootball.eu/forum/index.php/topic,8313.0.html


because that makes so much sense.

It'll be effectively a home final for Spurs, if they can close out the season in the WPL South. They beat rivals Charlton last weekend, while Cardiff lost.

Blackburn's place in the playoff is virtually assured by their away win over West Brom:

Today's fixtures (19 March), while Tottenham and WBA are away in Cup derbies.

Ahh, now I realize, it is equidistant between north and south (London). It's officlal – Blackburn have now reached the WPL Championship :o Play-Off by beating Derby. They've won the WPL North, and it's only a matter of time before Tottenham do the same in WPL South.

Tottenham are the champs of the WPL South, and will face Blackburn for promotion to WSL 2.

Maybe more exciting, the club are really supporting their women's team. They opened up White Hart Lane for the title-winning match against West Ham, which had an attendance of over 2,000 – more than the rest of WPL/Div 1 combined this week.
